José Zanine Caldas Bench $55,000>
LAFFANOUR-Galerie Downtown

This bench in exotic wood was created by José Zanine Caldas. It’s signed Zanine on the back side.

Born on the southern coast of Bahia, Caldas (1919-2001) was a self-taught designer and architect. In 1948, he co-founded Móveis Artisticos Z, a furniture company dedicated to modernist principles. Not long after, his work shifted; drawing inspiration from Bahian artisans, he began to create sculptural functional objects from felled trees.
